of the united states house of representatives. the united states senate, the senate majority leader, the speaker of the house, the honorable edward brooke, and the president of the united states. [applause] [applause] [applause] [applause] >> ladies and gentlemen, majority leader of the united states senate, the honorable harry reid. [applause] >> everyone, please be seated. november 6, 1962, was a special day for president john kennedy. it was a day his brother ted won his old seat in the united states senate. the seat he would hold for the next 46 years, until just two months ago. a seat from which he would greatly improve the lives of his fellow americans. but on that election night, president kennedy took particular notice of another result from that same ballot in massachusetts. the people of the president's home state had elected edward brooke to be its attorney general, making him the first african-american to hold statewide office in massachusetts and the first african-american to serve as any state's attorney general. president john kennedy exclaimed, and i quote, "that's the biggest ne
trial in the history of the united states. that's my conclusion after studying it as close as i could. and that's the report of my book. i try to explain in my book why i believe that to be true, and i will try to give you a suggestion on what i believe that to be true in my remarks here tonight. john brown's trial was the first trial in the history of the united states to receive massive attention from national media. it was the first trial in which a defendant was executed for treason against a state, as opposed to treason against the united states. it was the first trial in which an accused defendant appealed to a higher law to justify violent crimes. it was a trial that involved more than just a determination of an individuals guilt or innocence, according to laws laid down in statute books and in case reports. it was a trial that pitted two starkly different moral visions against each other. one of these visions defended the institution of chattel slavery as traditional, necessary, just and worthy of protection from outside interference. particularly, from the outside interferenc
and come to the united states and harm us physically or our nato allies or others. that's our quest. now can that quest be coupled with the ideas for nato -- schools, building a police force that is not corrupt, but also is efficient, and to do this in a country in which the literacy rate is so low, the poverty is so endemocratic. the whole traditions of dealing with money as to who your friends were is really so much a part of just existing. i think for the moment, the president from press accounts is looking at it province by province. he's looking at being in the medium-sized cities as well as the hamlets in the country. how does this match up with what we are doing with a line drawn by europeans a long time ago to divide the countries? do we understand the poshtoon culture? well, yes and no, and we're all learning fast, including the president, but i think we are learning. if the president does come forward with a plan or plans, he must make that very specific. and that is a very big quest. it will not do to have a tentative feeling that now you see if, now you don't, and this is amo

of israelis and palestinians to live in peace and security. it is also in the interest of the united states. it is urgently needed. the president knows that achieving this goal will be difficult, but he also has said that he will not weaver and his persistent pursuit of comprehensive peace in the middle east. for that reason, he has dedicated himself and his administration to the resumption of israeli-palestinian negotiations and to the creation of an atmosphere that maximizes the prospects for success. to be clear, the steps we have suggested to all parties -- israel, the palestinians, and the arab states -- to improve the atmosphere for negotiations are not ends to themselves, and they certainly are not preconditions to negotiations. but they can make a valuable contribution toward achieving our goal of successful negotiations that result in a two-state solution. that's why we've urged the palestinians to expand and improve their security efforts and to take strong and meaningful action on incitement. it's why we have urged the arab states to take steps toward normalization of relations w

from the importation of marijuana from mexico into the united states. and so this continues to be a priority for this administration. >> the fact is, 90% of the people that have medical marijuana prescription in california don't have a real illness. what they have is a desire to smoke marijuana. and yet we are allowing state law to interpret federal law. i would quote former clinton white house director of public affairs, white house office of national drug policy bob wiener was recently quoted warning the administration, be careful about the new apportionment policy for medical marijuana because you may get more than you bargained for. prescription marijuana use has exploded for healthy people. there's no question about that, that it has. i want to make sure that you're concerned with that as well. this will be my last question. you know, pay attention to this because two years ago i released a report on the justice department that outlined the $1 billion of waste a year that most americans would concur with in terms of low priorities. if, in fact, there's 10% of that truth

when the president of the united states shows up to watch the game. when the president is there in support of the other team's coach, you've got to think it's kind of okay, right? well, the young george washington colonials got you to a blazing start until last night. the older brother of michelle obama. carl hobbs has the yonals at 4-0. more pressures on the president and first family are watching there. g.w. loses the ball. dwayne smith gets a handle on it. gives it to herman with the jam to finally get the colonials on the board. be unstoppable to the hoop and the foul. three of his game-high 18 points right there made the score 48-37. and now g.w. drops 4 and 1. getting a handshake from the president after the game, priceless. let's go to verizon center. georgetown hosting lafayette. hungry for their fourth straight win. georgetown in transition. chris wright gets the rebound. nice passing to monroe. dishes to clark, who puts it up and in for two of his career-high 19 points. then late first half, we've got jason clark at the top of the key. clark finds a wide open

in the united states. -- we also have a very high immunization coverage rate in the united states. as you mentioned, there are many to wonder about the safety of the vaccine. what we say over and over again is what we know. we know that these vaccines are being made exactly the same way as the seasonal flu vaccine. in the u.s., about 100 million people get the seasonal flu vaccine every year and have a good safety track record. not every form of prevention is promised to be 100% safe, so we have a monitoring system to be ready if there are problems and we find quickly and take action. i think the most important thing for consumers here and in france is that we are as transparent as possible. i could say we are really committed to that. the question from the phone? >> thank you for taking my question. the cdc editorial talks about these numbers that have been reported from august 31 through the end of october and talks about flu activity being substantially above historic levels since record-keeping began. could you put this in perspective? what did the historical levels mean? >> we have b

national security. the fbi has estimated that up to 10% of the mosques in the united states are supported by people who favor terrorism. people are going to be very, very sensitive about that. they are going to be cautious, but you have to ask the question, as terrible as fort hood was, what if, in fact, we have across this country even more people who are prepared to kill americans on behalf of trying to impose on us and essentially for the structure of belief? i think this is a very important problem -- impose on us an essentially foreign belief. greta: let me move to another fascinating discussion, the new york 23rd congressional district. the winner has not been certified, and yet, the democratic candidate has been sworn in. how did that happen? >> well, apparently, when the conservative candidate doug hoffman came close, but nobody really thought it was going to be in any way contest oh, they conceded and in good sportsmanship, which is appropriate in america, and then they discovered they had been given that information, that they had done far better in his key county than they had

. the president essentially said that the united states welcomes china playing a greater role on the international stage in terms the global economy. with that comes greater responsibilities. here is how essentially the president broke down the relationship between the u.s. and china. >> we meet here at a time when the relationship between the united states and china has never been more important to our collective future. >> never more important. so president hu said that the u.s. and china would work more closely on macroeconomic issues. financial policies and that sort of thing. which obviously is of interest to the united states. we will see how that all plays out. alisyn. alisyn: mike, what about iran? did that issue come up? any progress there. >> it did come up. and president obama was pretty firm in saying that if iran continued to thumb its nose at the world community in terms of its nuclear weapons programs, that there would be consequences but president hu was noncommittal about that. and that has to be troubling to the united states. president hu obviously has incredible influence over
for pictures with rahm emanuel and the vice president of the united states. >> it's just unbelievable to me. the couple posted pictures of themselves on facebook hanging out with the vice president. and the white house chief of staff rahm emanuel. a woman describing herself as the publicist for this couple says that they were fully cleared to attend the event. oh, honey, we have a lot more to talk about than just that. so who are the salehis? richard lui takes a closer look in about ten minutes. >>> you may be up earlier than normal to do the cooking and baking today. others are up early to stake their place in new york. 31 balloons including snoopy and spongebob square pants have been inflated for the macy's thanksgiving day parade. thousands of people are expected at this morning's parade including santa claus. >>> yesterday you know was a busy travel day but many people avoided the airports. aaa reports air travel could be down by more than 6% this year. check out the crowds at penn station in new york yesterday. many people chose to go by train, be bus or car. apparently because it is c
at home because the united states does not have diplomatic relations with iran, the swiss are acting as go-betweens in this particular case. the last visit was almost a month ago. what have you learned from those visits? >> well, we understand they're in physical good health. but we also are very pained to hear of their isolation and there must be an extremely difficult state of mind they're in because of this isolation. and we are hoping that the iranian authorities will show compassion and release our children as soon as possible. this has gone on way too long. it is just short of four months. i believe it's 117 days. and we cannot imagine why it is such a protracted detention. >> president ahmadinejad was in brazil earlier this week. on monday, he actually talked about this, saying it's up to the courts to decide the fate of your son and his two friends but that he hoped the verdict would be lenient. it's very similar language to that which he used in new york city at the united nations general assembly back in december, yet nothing has happened in terms of their release. do his words g
. but welcome to the united states senate. but you really said it right, that this is the democrats' attempt to break a republican filibuster. and you said that magic number is 60, and what that means for the democrats, since they have 60 senators who align with them, there is no room for error. if one democrat says you know what, i don't think this is the right thing to do, i don't want to move forward for debate, this whole thing could go down before it even starts. i want to put up two pictures for you. mary landrieu of louisiana and blanche lincoln arkansas, these are the two remaining holdouts who have not said whether or not they will proceed with debate. despite that, betty, the fact that the democratic leadership is going ahead with this gives us a pretty good indication combined with what we're hearing from our sources that they feel pretty confident they'll be okay with all 60 of these senators. we're expecting statements from both of them sometime later today to confirm that is right. if not, this could be a surprising day. >> give us a little more detail, if you would, about what
that there were ethnic groups in the united states who were in favor -- fell in the central european country in asia. domestic policy and domestic politics and preferences have an impact. one thing that is striking in my mind is the change from a small group that cares passionately about the issue. boston is the -- bosnia is the classic case. there were almost 10 congressmen and some people in the world who were very interested in an aggressive policy for bosnia. as soon as we had an aggressive policy, you realized there were a lot of people with good or bad reasons opposed to it and there was the classic day when the republican-controlled house of representatives during the coast of the war boded against a greater effort -- against the -- during the kosovo war and voted against a greater effort. >> we have about two more minutes. >> i defer to pull up on the question about promises broken. i was asked to go back and read memos. i essentially agree where philip came out. there's a danger here for the current administration to swallow this revisionist history that vladimir putin has conjured
